Apply for Financial Aid – 2021-2022
The Financial Aid Office aims to make applying for financial aid as seamless as possible. For questions related to student eligibility, please visit our Financial Aid Fact Sheet. Follow these easy steps to apply:
STEP 1 – FASFA (Required for Applicants, Newly Admitted, and Continuing Students)
Complete the 2021-22 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You must include the Federal School Code of E00475 on your FAFSA. In order to complete the FAFSA, you will need an FSA ID. You can complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) prior to being admitted. The FAFSA can be completed prior to or after being admitted to the university.
Did you get selected for Federal Verification during the FAFSA Process?
STEP 2 – SOE Planned Enrollment Form (Required for Newly Admitted and Continuing Students)
Once you have been admitted to the JHU School of Education, you can complete the 2021-22 Planned Enrollment Form. The form can be found on the financial aid portal which admitted students can access through SIS Self Service. Once logged into SIS, click Financial Aid and you will be redirected to the financial aid portal, Net Partner. On Net Partner, click Menu, then select Planned Enrollment Form. The SOE Planned Enrollment Form cannot be completed prior to being admitted to the university.
STEP 3 – Institutional Scholarship Application
The School of Education (SOE) offers a limited number of partial, need-based institutional scholarships each year. Through the generosity of donors, SOE’s Endowed Scholarship awards range from $500 to $1,500 per year and are applied to tuition expenses beginning in the fall semester. Faculty committees select the award recipients based on criteria established by the donor. The deadline to submit the Scholarship Application Form for the 2021-22 academic year is March 16th for the Doctor of Education (EdD) program and April 1st for Master’s Degree and Graduate Certificate programs. Please visit Grants & Scholarships for more information.
STEP 4 – Annual Student Loan Acknowledgement
Before you receive your first Direct Loan disbursement each year, you must complete the Annual Student Loan Acknowledgment with the U.S. Department of Education. The annual requirement helps you to understand the debt obligation and responsibilities you assume with student loans. If this is your first time accepting a federal student loan, you will review loan data for JHU students and your debt estimate in relation to this data. If you have previously borrowed federal student loans, you will acknowledge that you understand your current debt and remaining loan eligibility.
You must complete your Annual Student Loan Acknowledgment online at https://studentaid.gov/asla/.
Loans – If you require additional aid, students typically utilize the Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan or private alternative student loans.
